ASUNDER is a doom metal band from Oakland, CA that belt out thick, heavy, slow jams of monstrous proportions. This debut release features 2 songs of crushing thunderous doom, with sullen guitar hooks and gargantuan vocals… the shortest song at close to 9 minutes. Musically they're influenced by loads of European Doom acts such as MY DYING BRIDE, ANATHEMA, early CATHEDRAL and CANDLEMASS. Features current and ex-memebrs of GROUNDWORK, SKAVEN, and DYSTOPIA. LIKE FLIES ON FLESH (from Ft. Worth, TX) can best be described to the uninitiated, as an unholy union of, AT THE GATES, and "Killers Era" IRON MAIDEN. Dueling guitar hero war harmonies and chainsaw riffs abound. Vocals (male and female alike) alternate between sullen crooning and maniacal desperation. Well crafted songs punctuated with riff after riff of twisted melodies that will sear the flesh from your smoldering skull, and leave you weeping in a pool of your own meaningless. Whole packages is covered with beautiful original photos, lithographs and prints created by the bands and their friends. LP comes with two fold out posters.
